Creativity flourishes in a cycle?

Do I think Creativity flourishes in a Cycle?

As a person who is into creating arts, photography, and writings; I am almost certain that creativity comes in cycles. Because when I have ideas they come in bundles, sometimes more creative ideas that I can take on at a time. But then I also have these few days, sometimes weeks where I cannot think of darn thing.

There are so many of my days I go out in to the world and I view everything I look at as a photograph, story, or drawing. One line my family hears often from me is, "Oh my gosh, that would be an awesome picture!" These "creative" days can last for weeks and a couple of months at a time. During these times I've noticed that usually everything in my life is pretty stressful, and it's kind of like me "escaping" from the "real world" for a while. I don't have to think about what's going on in my life that's stressing me and it soothes me to express myself in the ways that I love best; writing, photography, and drawing.

I've also began to notice that on days when I'm loving my life and happy; I'm not creating in the ways that I usually express my creativity; through my arts. I think this is because I'm happy with what I am doing at the time and too busy to sit down and create anything. Majority of those times I am spending time with my family or I'm at work.

The times I draw a complete blank are when I try to force an idea. It's never worked for me to just sit somewhere and think of something creative to do. Lately, when I can't think of anything to do but I am feeling a little creative I go to various sites like HubPages.com or DeviantArt.com to get a little ispiration on what I can do next.

As for God having anything to do with, I personally don't think so. I don't see how religion would have to do with this. One's creativity doesn't come from God; it comes from the individual. A person's creativity may be inherited or just a natural talent. I don't think that if I attend church this Sunday I will come out with the million dollar idea. Sorry.

      I guess then your challenge is to find a new muse, who can arouse your creativity in the good times :)

      I feel ya, music sometimes inspires me to be creative too. LOL and what I'm listening to usually is a tell tale sign what mood I'm in.

      Thanks for the comment.

      Every thing I do, depend off how I feel today. You can hear it on the music I play which mood I am in.

      It took me a while to figure it out, then I realized every time I was extremely upset or mad I could sit somewhere for a long period of time and be very creative especially when it comes to writing.

      Interesting. Personally I have experienced that times of (perceived) happiness can be very inspiring and trigger my creativity. Just as much as times of sorrow can. Creativity does in my case come in waves too. I just haven’t found out which moon arouses them :)
